DSC01484 Ida Puliwa

Yes, Malawi is currently the poorest country in the world. Last year they had devastating floods; this year a devastating drought. And yet, here is a local girl not looking to others to save them. This local girl is mobilizing her own people to take care of each other. To lift up entire communities… locally.

For a young woman (yes, a young WOMAN no less) to garner the support of local chiefs, that is quite an accomplishment. Then to rally volunteers who PAY to participate? And orphans on scholarship outperforming all the other students? Lives are being saved. People are becoming educated, and starting sustainable businesses. All because of the gratitude, fortitude, intelligence, energy, and pluck of this one young woman.
